The Question Club
1. You're a young woman in a large (800,000-ish in population) city an hour from home to see a show. You know no one in the city. Due to a series of ridiculous events, you and your friend Jane are left behind by your ride home, a jerk-off who intentionally left you behind. Now you and Jane are in an empty, albeit lit, parking lot and freaking out. Suddenly a well-kempt man appears. He stands about 30 feet away, holds his hands out, and says, "I promise I'm not a mugger or a creep or a scam artist. I just need to ask you ladies a question. May I approach you?" You and Jane both have your cell phones out, and Jane has a purse over her shoulder. You allow the man to approach.|
He further reassures you he just needs to ask a quick favor, and keeps his hands in view. He says he was at work (working third shift) and his wife's water broke. She was taken to the hospital via ambulance. En route to the hospital himself, he blew a tire. He explains he's contacted the fire department, but due to liability issues they can't personally drive him to the hospital. They can, however, provide him with a donut/spare tire for $25. The man, now fighting tears, explains he has only $17 on him. He again promises you his intentions are completely pure, and asks if he can borrow $8 from you. This man also, after hearing your story of being left behind, points you to the nearest open business and insists you go there asap because it's much safer than a parking lot, as it's well lit and full of people.
Assuming between the two of you, you and Jane have $8, do you give the man the money, or assume he's a very crafty scammer and say no?

4. If you're in or around Indianapolis, Indiana, have you seen the Cardboard Village community art project in the Mass. Ave. area/arts district? If so, it's cool as hell y/y?
